You are asking the question in the UK a section of Just Answer.
The house will remain in the name of the deceased until such time as an application is made to the land registry.
That is done using land registry form assent AS1, which transfers the property into the name of the beneficiaries. The grant of probate is the authority to do that.
The land registry will also want form AP1 (don’t ask me why because it doesn’t do anything but they do like their forms) and they may want an ID1 for each of the executors. They don’t need it for the beneficiaries. This latter form needs a photograph certified by a solicitor as being a true likeness.
The beneficiaries declare the rental not the executors.
The property vests in the beneficiaries at the date of death even though they may only become the legal owners later on. The rental income from the date of death vests in the beneficiaries also.
